By combining her business acumen with her inherent sense of compassion she has enabled hundreds of people with addiction and emotional issues to regain control of their lives. She was a nominee for YWCA women of distinction awards in the business and professions category in 2008 and she was also nominated for 2008 Celebration of Business Excellence Award in the business category.
